II needed a shawl of this colour to combine with a dress with floral frint in green (must be crazy when I bought it becaude I almost never use pattere) and Sue/Richard helped me sending different samples until I gave with the exact color.
I knit this shawl with one ply and 3.5 mm needles. Nice to knit and block. I used 55 grams of yarn and it is 240 cms wide and 110 cms higth.

2/62NM cashmere/linen cobweb weight doubled

Finished this last week and I am thrilled with it. Originally white, overdyed by me for this project. The cashmere is so soft and the drape provided by the linen is exquisite.
Just finished this Aprè Surf Hoodie, using yarn held double (which makes a light fingering) and 3.5mm.
It used less than 2 cones and the resulting fabric is really lovely, soft and light.
Lovely colour, cheery sunny orange!

I tried this yarn. Beautiful drape and so sweet!
I definitely think will be better knit it with 3.5 mm needles.

Oh my! Get some while you can! It's SOOO pretty and very soft! It blooms a lot so I feel it is a bit more on the fingering side.
My daughter-in-law asked me to make a shrug for her wedding. We couldn't find a pattern, so I designed this one for her. My first attempt at designing something and we were both thrilled with how it turned out! I am working on the pattern now.

Such a pretty yarn and very unique for Colourmart! I had fun swatching this one because of it's unusual behaviour in water. Please read my notes which will explain what I mean
I made this pullover mixing a strand of 3/52 100% cashmere with a strand of kidsilk from my stash. The pattern is a treeline and I used two colours: marine and chocolat and I used the same colours in mohair. The ribbings and the collar is in plain marine and I used two strand of the cashmere and one of the mohair. After vigorous washing, the piece is extremely soft .You can see more photos in http://ravel.me/maica/sj
My first ColourMart project!

Here is my first project made from ColourMart yarn. The yarn didn't bloom as much as I'd anticipated, but I should have swatched first, then I would have known to knit on needles a size smaller. The finished piece is pretty, though. I added light pink beads to give the beige yarn and simple pattern a little pop. The Ravelry link is: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/CheriseRoselle/crown-jewel
